I bet would've been an amazing volleyball player, as well.

I wonder how many high jump, sprint, shot put combo athletes there are.

If someone can high jump 5"8" (which is amazing) they must be close to dunking a basketball? Not sure, I'm just wondering?

Go Gophers!

Those are called heptathletes...
I get your point but she isn't doing the heptathlon, she is competing straight, up against other athletes that have specialized. I know it is only high school but it is still impressive. I would be astounded if she just made state in one of the distance events (>=800m) in addition to showing her acumen in the explosive events.

Nia's performance in this season must have Director of Track & Field programs Matt Bingle salivating. She won't be available for the indoor season, but I can see her trying ala Liz Podominick. Hopefully the allure of the Olympics doesn't derail her in basketball;)
